Hello, all! I'm Kristin and I've been listening to DLWeekly for a year!
My first trip to Disneyland was in 1985 when I was a tween (not an actual word back then!) It was a huge deal for my family to go. It was the only vacation we ever took outside of our home state of Texas! I loved the immersive rides like Journey into Innerspace, Pirates of the Caribbean, and the Haunted Mansion. Besides the rides, the biggest impression that stuck with me was walking by Videopolis. It was dusk and the dance floor was lighted in brilliant colors, revealing more teens gathered in one space than I had ever seen! They were dancing to Tears For Fears and Depeche Mode and I desperately wanted to join them! I had to wait another year to go to my first school dance.
The next time I went was with my husband and 4- and 6-year-old sons! The boys are now 12 and 14 and we have been to DL/DCA four times, WDW once, and recently Disneyland Paris. Needless to say, I'm hooked!
I love the podcast and hearing everyone's personal Disney stories! My husband and I aspire to be a cast members when we retire.
